There was no buying ME1 DLC. PC got it for free because it came out a year after consoles.
Only one DLC was free. They wanted you to buy the other one.
Ahh shit my bad. Forgot there was a second one.

Don't think I'm alone in this, they need to let people buy the game, register it with an origin account, but NOT install origin software. It's not worth using multiplayer to have origin installed, but I would eventually like to play ME3.
No. They need to stop being so fucking anal over control of their games. Something Valve sure as shit isnt as Valve games are on Origin.

I mean, I still remember the fiasco with buying ME1 DLC from EA after having bought ME1 from Steam.

Words mean nothing when it comes to topics of DLC. We have been shafted and ripped off to many times to trust ANYONE'S words on the subject.

Just shut up and release the DLC. Prove us wrong.

Origin **IS** DRM. This is like Valve saying a Steam game has no DRM yet still requires Steam.

As for the whole Origin thing, I do not need my games spread across more than one download service. Accounts with this, accounts with that. Oh shit game ABC is with service XYZ not 123.

Fragmentation is nothing but evil. Not to mention the lack of choice for the user because EA wants to be supreme overlord with their products.

It just is not worth any game to buy into this corporate greed and iron fist control. Sure after launch I will salivate to get the latest new game. But I have learned that every time once a week passes I could care less. Did that with Battlefield 3 and I will now do it with Mass Effect 3.

1 year 9 months and they pitch it for $35, -14%. Just wow. I have seen AAA titles priced lower than that after the same amount of time.

In before blaming poor sales on piracy.

Witcher 2 diary: The most complex and nonlinear story ever told on Xbox 360.

Yeah... because for a change its not a dudebro game on 360. Having something complex and nonlinear on that system is not a hard feat.

For all that some people give it shit, I think I've only ever been unable to play a Steam game once or twice in the entirety of its existence. By comparison Ubisoft has had several instances of this happening so my confidence in them ever launching a credible client service with UPlay is nil.
I second this. Back in I think November AC2 was down for 2-3 days because of some fuckup with their servers. This was after the always on but you still need the internet at every launch.

I do not think I have EVER had DRM issues with Steam. Even when at friends LAN parties where the internet is shut off.

Another sucky Star Wars game. Really surprised they made Battlefront II after the horrible first game.

Star Wars Battlefield it is not and doubt it ever will be.

I remember Carmack laughing at Epic's Unreal engine and their game. Who's laughing now?

Source? I don't think I've ever seen Carmack disrespect a fellow developer, and he's always spoken about Sweeney with respect in particular.

You obviously weren't around in the late 90's, then. Their usenet and .plan shit-talking was the stuff of legend.
This. Most of them I read right here on Blues News... holy crap the link is still there! http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/summary.pl

I wish more MMO's did this. Firewall their servers and only allow the markets that the game is officially released in connect.

I really enjoyed the first book.
I had never pissed myself laughing reading a book till I found out what the "Last Wish" really was.

As for the **FREE** enhanced edition I will be buying it again on Steam. I already have the CE version from its original launch. These guys deserve the money.

Pretty hilarious steam doesn't have a QR code image on that site that directly links to the app item on Itunes or Android Market
When a link is perfectly suitable? Stop rethinking the wheel.

QRcodes are fine for something like scanning a physical product. Damned stupid on websites.

I love how these folks call something a bonus, but its actually something that they're basically making, putting on the disk (probably) and then locking everyone out from it except those that order their art book.
Nothing beats Dead Space 2 on PC.... yet.

I wonder if they fixed the banking glitch yet.

Also Assassin's Creed MP is about as useless and stupid as Mass Effect MP. Some slapped on shit that just does not work right (least on PC).

I don't think there are any intentional cases of Steam games running without Steam.
There are. Someone made an argument in a blues thread about being able to do it with most games on steam, so I decided to test it out. I tested about 50 of my collection of games and only found a couple that would work properly. So the guy's argument was false about "most." Many of them crapped out with errors when trying to do so, a couple would let you play to some degree after the errors, and a couple would let you play normally without steam. I don't recall exactly, but I have the impression they were more indie type games. Which is why I think its because they didn't bother to integrate the steam authorization system into the exe. I'm not going to go back and test it again though.

It's hard to prove intention but I'd have to agree with Jerykk here. Any Steam game that runs without Steam is likely a happy accident not an intentional effort to work without Steam. But that goes both ways too, those same games likely didn't have any work done on them to force them to run with Steam either.
FFXI runs without Steam and it is fully intentional. Steam is nothing more than a downloader for that game... and not even a full one. After downloading the game with Steam (in less than a hour) you need another 6-8 hours of updates (through the FFXI updater).
